Lakewood Discount Tenant Screening Service
The City of Lakewood is proud to announce our new discounted applicant screening service, now offered to all landlords in within the city. We have partnered with CoreLogic SafeRent to offer a full line of resident screening services utilizing SafeRent’s vast databases of landlord-tenant and criminal records.
CoreLogic SafeRent is a comprehensive suite of screening services designed especially for the smaller landlord. SafeRent DIRECT includes the same vital leasing-decision services used by the nation's largest real estate investment companies and property managers, including the only statistically validated tenant score.

Landlords who use SafeRent to screen applicants under this program satisfy one of the three requirements for obtaining a housing license under Ord. 55-10, which became effective in May 2011.
How the Program Works
Lakewood landlords who use SafeRent’s online screening services will receive a substantial discount on packages offered by SafeRent. The discount code is for use only by landlords who own property in Lakewood, and the code must be kept confidential. Discounts are available only on screening packages ordered online through myrental.com.
All you need is the code we provide you in order to receive the discount.
